Blood & Chocolate ★½ 2007 (PG-13)

Interspecies dating. American Vivian (Bruckner) works in a Bucharest chocolate shop when not turning furry at the full moon. She falls for cute human artist Ai-den (Dancy), who's obsessed with werewolves, but has a problem since she's betrothed to hot pack leader Gabriel (Martinez). What's a shape-shifting gal to do? Tame story from von Garnier based on the edgier teen novel by Annette Curtis Klause; the pic's ending goes for conventional romance as does the schmaltzy music. Special effects are minimal. 96m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc . US GE RO Agnes Bruckner, Olivier Martinez, Hugh Dancy, Bryan Dick, Katja Riemann; D: Katja von Garnier; W: Ehren Kruger, Christopher Landon; C: Brendan Galvin; M: Johnny Klimek, Reinhold Heil.
